Putting Bheestie Bag to the test--photos
The $20 Bheestie Bag is used to remove day-to-day moisture from electronic devices, but it also has the potential to dry and revive soaked electronics.
To put it to the test, we "accidentally" dropped this Insignia MP3 player in a fountain. When an MP3 player or cell phone is submerged, water quickly enters through the headphone jack and floods the device. Within a minute, our player's display filled with water and froze, and the device shut down.
As suggested by Bheestie, we removed the battery immediately and wiped all visible water with paper towels.
